Stamp 'N' Hop - 2018 Holiday Catalogue

Welcome to the Stamp  'N' Hops 2018 Holiday Catalogue blog hop. 

While last year I decided that I would purchase all that I could afford, this year I really wanted to make sure that I purchased stamp sets and embossing folders that not only lent it to Christmas but also could be used at other times of the year. 

However, this hop I wanted to get into the Christmas spirit as I love the Christmas season so I wanted to make a wonderful Christmas card, and the DSP has some wonderful photorealistic prints. 

Below are photos to help with the creation of this 6x6 Z-Fold card, I have taken the original design and altered it to create a card that had more writing space that could also be hidden. 

I hope you enjoy the hop and I wish to thank Anastasia for her wonderful work...

Here is the template that I have used to create the Z-Fold card... credit to Julie Burt as this is her template, I have added another card section...

You will need the following (some changes from the pic)
Card Base 
Cardstock Base 25cm x 15cm
